Work and family and rationing time
This is aimed at anyone who has a job-job, but specifically toward you ladies who work from home... Even more if you've done both.
Have you ladies notice that work doesn't seem to register as "work" to your friends and family? Even if they logically understand you are committed to something and you are making money from it, they somehow think "Oh, you're here! Tend to my every desire, because that's obviously more important."
That's about how I feel lately.
If you've overcome it, please let me know your secrets!! I'm going to start putting a sign on my back that says "busy" I swear.
Sometimes we have to be firm with people. I'm a really passive agressive person so being "firm" isn't something I'm used to but I've had to learn to apply some aggression with my daughter and the rest of my family when important things pop up. I just try my best to explain to my daughter that every now and then mommy needs to do important stuff and that she needs to play by herself until I'm done.
